Little did I realize the amazing effect it had in stablizing my moods.
It was only when I neglected to refill my script for a week (I'm lazy) that I realized what this med does to stablize my moods.
Also known as: Fanatrex, Gabarone, Gralise, Neurontin The following information is NOT intended to endorse drugs or recommend therapy. Not sure what I would do without it.""I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1994. Twenty minutes after first dose I became dizzy, couldn't handle any noise became angry and shaky.
While these reviews might be helpful, they are not a substitute for the expertise, skill, knowledge and judgement of healthcare practitioners in patient care. Went to bed pulled the covers over my head until hours later when things calmed down.
The 1st dose I took was 300mg during a flare up and I noticed a difference in widespread pain and sensitivity and anxiety. Scary but kind of nice for me when a migraine flare comes and you can't sleep. I am having bad dark dreams and wake with a headache, my nose and roof of my mouth are painful and are very drowsy in the morning.""I have a slipped disk and expierence severe nerve pain going down my leg to my foot. I was just prescribed Neurontin 300mg one in the morning two at night.
I fell into an absolute funk and couldn't figure out why until I put 2 2 together. I have an overactive brain, and this med calms things down to a manageable pace. ""I have had fibromyalgia since 2003 and started taking 300mg of gabapentin 3x daily in 2015.
Within a couple months, my pain and fatigue subsided to the point I could work again.
Despite the side effects the first few times taking it it is the best decision I made! Highly recommend this to those who skeptics like I was. This medicine will level you off so that your anxiety isn't taking over your life. Wind, water, a wrong touch and I am knocked to my knees, seriously. The pain has got to stop.""I am on 600 mg 4-5 times a day. I can live with that.""I first took this for nerve pain which worked awesome but was pleasantly surprised to find it worked for my anxiety also.
The side effects weren't that bad, first dose was a bit harsh after that it was manageable and went away. None of the ugly effects after taking for a while have surfaced either and I hope they don't.""I have extensive nerve pain due to stenosis of the spine, frozen shoulders, sciatic, arthritis, bad knees. It actually helped me function in life rather than avoid it altogether. I want to enjoy myself somewhat before I'm too old. About the only drug that ever did anything, no SSRI's have ever worked for me.""I had a case of Shingles in March of 2016.
